Recommended Posts

Steam Workshop Competition


With full Steam Workshop support added last week in our Winter Update, it is now easier than ever to share your own custom maps, missions and castle replicas with the Crusader 2 community. We have already seen some amazingly inventive creations, as befitting the Stronghold community, now we want to reward your efforts with our first Crusader 2 Custom Map Competition!


Demonstrate your creativity, level design and ingenuity to the Stronghold community by winning a lifetime?s supply of DLC for Stronghold Crusader 2. See YOUR map featured on the official Crusader 2 website, on social media and anywhere else we can tell the world about your amazing talents. Carve out deep valleys, blue seas and roaring waterfalls in your very own custom map, forming the ultimate battleground on which enemies Lord may duel.


For your chance to win follow these simple steps:


1. Run Steam.

2. Open the Stronghold Crusader 2 Map Editor in the 'Tools' section of your Steam Library.

3. Design your custom map.

4. Save the map by clicking 'File' and 'Save As', naming it whatever you like.

5. Publish to Steam Workshop by clicking 'File' and 'Publish to Steam Workshop'.

6. Write a short description for your map, add all the necessary tags that suit your map and make sure you've selected the 'Everyone' option in the Visibility section.

7. Click 'Publish'!

8. Send an email with a link to your custom map to news@fireflyworlds.com.


Once all submissions are in we will select two custom maps, one winner and one runner-up. The winner will be blessed with a lifetime?s supply of Stronghold Crusader 2 DLC, receiving all extra paid-for content for the game until our very last DLC pack. Meanwhile our honourable runner-up will be given the game?s first piece of DLC for free!


The Crusader 2 Custom Map Competition begins today, with entries being accepted until the end of the competition in three weeks? time on January 9th. After this date no new entries will be accepted. We will then play and evaluate each submitted map choosing two players to be our winner and runner-up, who will both be announced and spotlighted on the official Crusader 2 website and Facebook page.


Please note that we can only accept maps that were submitted between December 19th and January 9th (inclusive), any maps submitted before or after these dates will NOT be considered for selection in the competition.

The competition is over and the winners have been announced here:





The winner was Kyle-kr and the Runner up was Stavross. Congratulations !!


Micha! and his map Ocean Bay also recieved an honourable mention, along with a few others - which is very cool :cool:


And so did BlackBeard, aka Denroth, who was the first player to post a SHC2 map here at the SHN (and I think also the very first player to ever publicly post a SHC2 map in the time before the Workshop went online).





I happened to speak to Stavross on Steam today. He is very happy about his 2nd place and highly enthusiastic about the game.

Even had made a small video about the map: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wT3qoov2G8U

    • Old Stronghold Knights

      I was recently playing Stronghold Crusader 2 after upgrading my hardware and it has made me want to play stronghold crusader even more. Which reminded me of stronghold knights and a lot of their old stronghold content from Stronghold to Stronghold 2. I was wondering if anyone either had any copies of the many skirmish maps for crusader that were once part of SHK before its downfall.  This is a real shot in the dark but i was wanting to use the maps for old nostalgia as well as to store them

      As some of you may know, there are two versions of Stronghold 2: the Standard edition and the Deluxe edition. The standard edition patches to version 1.4.1, however, the Deluxe edition patches to version 1.31; and it requires a special Deluxe patch. The good news is that this patch was included on the DVD disc itself of late releases of this game (I have a late release which includes a 1.31 patch right on the disc; alternatively, the patch can also be downloaded here: https://www.patches-scrolls
